With more depth - and a bit more speed from Alex Perfitt in a pair of exciting sprint races - the Liverpool boys swim team fended off the challenge of Baldwinsville Wednesday night, earning a 104-76 victory over the Bees.
Perfitt first squared off with B'ville's Mike Tarsel in the 50 freestyle, and both touched the wall at nearly the same time. But Perfitt, with a time of 23.47 seconds, edged out Tarsel (23.50 seconds) for first place.
Later on, in the 100 freestyle, it was the same story as Perfitt, in 50.98 seconds, finished just ahead of Tarsel (51.32 seconds) for the top spot. Already, Perfitt had helped Cory Spado, Phil MacLeod and Jake Burns win the 200 medley
relay in 1:45.91.
Elsewhere in the meet, Dan Roche won the diving competition with 194.71 points. Dan Hens chimed in when he took the 200 freestyle (1:58.91), while Cory Spado sped through the 100 butterfly in 56.87 seconds. Spado, Burns, Drew Henry and Shane Donovan recorded a top time of 1:36.15 in the 200 freestyle relay.
B'ville's Dan Burke stood out for his side, recording the fastest Section III time of the season in the 100 backstroke (56.35 seconds) and also winning the 200 individual medley as helped the Bees speed to a time of 3:29.62 in the 400 freestyle relay.
